Southeast College students received more than thirty-five thousand dollars in scholarships and bursaries yesterday at the College’s Industry-Education Luncheon.

Awards were presented to students in various Weyburn programs, including Adult Basic Education, Third Class Power Engineering, Continuing Care Assistant, Hairstylist, Practical Nursing and University.

Bursary funds and some of the scholarships are provided without condition, but they are often meant to offset educational costs.

Hairstylist student Stacy Pederson explained that the Mentors ‘n’ Manicures Leadership Award will help cover the costs involved in her future career.

“My goal is to put it toward future equipment I need as I go out into the workforce,” explained Pederson of her $1,000 award. “You’ve got to take into consideration, I just bought a pair of scissors and it was $500.”

“I’m very grateful for the program and for the community-minded women that wanted to be a part of it,” she added.

Sheryl Hoff, who recently graduated as valedictorian of the Practical Nursing program, was awarded both the Weyburn Youngfellows Bursary and the Southeast College Post-Secondary Scholarship. 

Hoff said that her next step will be the licensing process. 

“It’s actually quite a large fee that we find out about at the end of our program of what we have in store as far as the licensing,” she noted. “So this definitely just about covers it.”

“I’m truly grateful,” said Hoff. “Just knowing that at this stage in education, it’s very appreciated.”

The annual awards are made possible by donations from community organizations, businesses and individuals, as well as various fundraising events such as the College’s Swing for Scholarships Golf Tournaments. 

Eligible Funds are matched by the Ministry of Advanced Education through the Saskatchewan Innovation and Opportunity Scholarship program. Of the total awarded in Weyburn, $15,450 was contributed through the SIOS program.
